  • Minnesota Wild vs. Los Angeles Kings: Game Recap


    For the Los Angeles perspective, please visit Jewels From The Crown.

    Frankly, 50 minutes of boring hockey followed by a fabulously entertaining final 10 minutes. So, screw it, I'm ignoring the first 50.

    Hey look at that! The Wild are in 8th place in the conference!!

    You could see, as time worn down both in the third period and in the overtime session that the Kings were waiting for the shootout, as they figured it would give them the best chance to win.

    Bryan's Take:



    Hockey Wilderness Three Stars

    Five Questions

    Will the Wild's All Stars show they deserved it? Burns put in a yeoman's effort tonight. Seriously, he was everywhere. Havlat has flashes of brilliance, but Brodziak let him down badly twice.
    Can the Wild protect Backstrom from Brown and Simmonds? Honestly, Stoner, Spurgeon, Burns, Schultz, Zanon and Barker all took care of business down low. Nice job by the crew tonight.
    Game 1000 for Bruno. Can the Wild feed off of that? Umm, sure didn't look or feel like it.
    Kaptain Koivu was quiet coming into the break. Can he make some noise tonight? No. Not at all. Not in the least. Where is he?
    Will Wild fans stop at the Defending the Blue Line table, just outside the Hockey Lodge? I'll have to get an update from Bryan after he talks to the good folks there in the next day or so.
